Following your heart's guidance. Trusting your internal compass. Navigating choppy waters. If you are missing the water that some good old lake and beach therapy provides but just can't get there right now, we've got a book to help tide you over. Be sure to check out all of Boatman's "Salt, Sand and Sea" series of blank journals as well as the "Lake and Mountain" series. Whether using them as a devotional, gratitude journal, destination diary, boat maintenance log, or just as a good old notebook, we hope that the healing energy infused with each one calms your mind, soothes your spirit and feeds your soul thinking about the water references of each cover. Having started boating and water skiing on the lake at his childhood, Boatman has been further blessed to live aboard his saltwater yacht for many years and goes back and forth between the two. He never tires of sunsets, stargazing, or the music of loons and seagulls alike. A boater by choice and marine mechanic by necessity, he shares his knowledge, skills and stories with all. Boatman is grateful and thankful for having spent his entire life soaking up the endless inspiration and beauty both fresh and saltwater environments generously provide. Let Boatman's Books carry you away to where the boat leaves from and start your mental vacation today.

This voluminous book of 47 chapters offers a good cross section of what is burgeoing in the field of client-centered and experiential psychotherapy on the threshold of the nineties. it does not represent a single vision but gives the floor to the various suborientations: classics Rogerians; client-centered therapists who favor some form of integration or even eclecticism; experiential psychotherapists for whom Gendlin's focusing approach is a precious way of working; client-centered therapists who look at the therapy process in terms of information-processing; existentially oriented therapists... Remarkable is that - for the first time in the history of client-centered/experiential psychotherapy - the European voice rings through forcefully: more than half of the contributions were written by authors from Western Europe.Several chapters contain reflections on the evolution—past, present, and future—of client-centered/experiential psychotherapy. The intensive research into the process, which had a central place in the initial phase of client-centered therapy, is given here ample attention, with several creative studies and proposals for renewal. In numerous contributions efforts are made to build and further develop a theroy of psychopathology, the client's process, the basic attitudes and task-oriented interventions of the therapist. The chapters dealing with clinical practice typically aim at the description of therapy with specific client populations and paricularly severely disturbed clients. And finally a few fields are introduced which are new or barely explored within the client-centered/experiential approach: working with dreams, health psychology, couple and family therapy.
